Kitlinx Newsletter - July 30, 2021



  • MRS Hobby Shop - South Salt Lake City location is OPEN ON MONDAY AUGUST 2nd! It is a "soft opening", so no red carpet yet... The "grand opening" will be in October. The address is 460 W Lawndale Dr., South Salt Lake City UT 84115. A 'word of warning', we are not fully organized, the bookshelves are not in yet, the paint racks are a "work of Love" (see below picture), but we are ready to meet you, come see us! - disclaimer: Kitlinx warehouse is NOT open to the public.

  • Kitlinx Local Pick- ups is now at the SSLC retail store front counter

Below is Loic's new office. Please note the two prints on the wall... The Me.262 print is signed by General Galland and 5 other German WW II jet fighter pilots. The "desert DAK" print is signed by Eduard 'Edu' Neumann, the commander of JG 27, and 4 other aces of that unit (unfortunately Marseille was long gone by the time this print was commissioned, even if his aircraft 'white 14' is illustrated on this print).

Next week, more picture... Our customer support booths are now built!!

The connection between the two retail stores and Kitlinx is in FULL SWING! Below are the lines updated THIS WEEK, in stock, ready to ship within 24-hours! This has added 3,900+ items to our in stock inventory.

Your Feedback:

Thank you, thank you, thank you.  As usual, the items which were indicated as available were.  The packaging was effective and protective.  An d the shipping interval was seriously short.  Highly recommended.  But to beat the dead horse, the real success is the data base.  After purchase of Nuts & Bolts #40, I discovered not only DML kits of this particular item, but I also discovered a CMK kit of the motor.  Easily finding these in the data base/catalog took no time at all.  The Kitlinx data base is a superior valuable resource.  Keep up the good work

I was asked to review my experience with Kitlinx so here we go.  I have nothing but high praise with this company.  My orders have all arrived in a timely manner and well packed.  I especially like ordering items from foreign distributers through Kitlinx because it is just so much easier.  Thank you, Kitlinx, for a job well done!

Its nice to deal with a company like Kitlinx that has integrity and a great work ethic.   I enjoy surfing your sight just to see what you have in stock.  I have ordered now from two other companies and have not received my order and lost a fair amount of money as a result.   With Kitlinx I put and order in, I'm notified when it is shipped and it shows up at my house. the correct models.  I will be ordering all of my models and supplies from Kitlinx from now on...…..

Search Tips:

[Kitlinx is still working on its LEFT COLUMN searches. This work will be completed as soon as "Kitlinx-on-the-clouds" is working smoothly]

Let me add some "tricks" to the POWERFUL search engine of Kitlinx (the SEARCH BOX at the TOP of the website). Below are the KEYS to search ~ 80,000 available products (63% in US, 37% in Europe)

1. Use the top box search on Homepage

2. Use several keywords separated by spaces to zero-in your search "1/48 spitfire aircraft_model" (59 kits)

3. Use the underscore "_", like armor_models or Tamiya_ or aircraft_accessor "1/48 spitfire aircraft_access" (456 accessories)

4. Use keyword "instock" to JUST search for in-stock items  

5. If you are searching for SALE items, use the keyword "~special~"

6. Don't forget the Manufacturer's link on TOP of each Product-Page. It quickly shows ALL available product from the same manufacturer

7. DO NOT use the asterisk "*"
